The Rock saved his new puppy from drowning

Tuesday September 8th, 2015

Actor and WWE legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson proved that he is as much of a hero in real life as he is in the movies over Labor Day weekend by saving a French bulldog puppy.

The Rock posted an Instagram telling the tale of his family’s new puppies Brutus and Hobbs, and how the two dashed towards the pool upon being introduced to the family yard, where Brutus had a little trouble swimming while Hobbs enjoyed himself.

The story ends well with Johnson reacting quickly and pulling Brutus from the bottom of the pool unharmed, with only the San Andreas star’s cell phone taking any damage from his impromptu dive into the pool.
